Dear Parent/ Carers

 

Please log onto tapestry for your child's remote learning for the day. 

Literacy

 

Struggling to get your child to write or draw?

Try this great idea from one of our lovely parents - The Magic Post box!!

Simply create a post box at home and get the children to post any writing or pictures into the box. Without the child knowing, take a photo of their work and send it to friends or family. The recipient can then celebrate receiving their work in 'the post'. We all have a Great Aunt Alice who needs a sign for her gate! Get creative!
